👅Original Chicken Ramen ($5.18 - 6 Year Anniversary promo!) 📍Kinton Ramen [505 Highway 7 E., Unit 54-58, Markham, ON] ⭐️5/5 • After making the mistake of coming here for dinner on their anniversary last year, we decided to try our luck with lunch this time. We showed up just after 11 and was able to snag the first spot in line! Within seconds, the line grew and by the time they opened at 11:30, it had snaked around the corner. I chose the Original Chicken Ramen with thick noodles. As a self-proclaimed soup drinker, I nearly finished the entire bowl - it was rich, flavourful and not too salty! Since it came with chicken breast, I was worried it would be tough and dry, but it was super tender and moist! The noodles were perfectly chewy and the egg had just the right amount of runny yolk. For a filling bowl of noodles less than half their original price, the wait was worth it! Check out our story for the full promo menu :) . . . #granniesgather #kintonramen #18052018 #ramen #chicken #markhamfood #food #blogto #tofoodies #tastetoronto #foodporn  #foodgasm #foodpics #markhameats #yyzeats #feedmyphone #phoneeatsfirst
👅Funnel Cake [$11.99] 📍Canada's Wonderland [1 Canada's Wonderland Drive, Vaughan ON] ⭐️4/5 • You can't have the full amusement park experience if you don't get at least one amusement park staple! The funnel cakes at Wonderland have always been my go-to for a nice treat in-between rides. You can choose if you want ice-cream or not, as well as the strawberry topping. The funnel cakes are always made fresh to order, and are big enough to feed at least two people, so make sure you have a buddy with you! . . . #granniesgather #canadaswonderland #28082017 #funnelcake #icecream #vaughanfood #amusementpark #food #blogto #tofoodies #tastetoronto #foodporn  #foodgasm #foodpics #vaughaneats #yyzeats #feedmyphone #phoneeatsfirst
👅Shredded Pork & Gold Preserved Egg Congee ($6.75) + Spice & Salt Pepper Squid ($11.50) + Spice & Salt Pepper Bean Curd ($8.25) + BBQ Pork Rice Noodle Roll ($4.95) 📍Congee Queen [230 Commerce Valley Dr E #1, Thornhill ON] ⭐️4/5 • With a very extensive menu, Congee Queen has options for everyone whether you're craving rice or noodles to fried or barbecued to pork or chicken. We love their congee, which has lots of ingredients and isn't too watery - though it is known to have MSG, so drink lots of fluids! Their BBQ Pork Rice Noodle Roll was very soft and had a good ratio of BBQ Pork to Noodle Roll. The Squid and Bean Curd were both very crispy and fresh, with just the right amount of spice. Just make sure you finish the dish while it's still hot, as it will definitly not be as crispy if you wait! . . . #granniesgather #congeequeen #01042018 #congee #squid #chasiu #bbqpork #ricenoodleroll #markhamfood #food #blogto #tofoodies #tastetoronto #foodporn  #foodgasm #foodpics #markhameats #yyzeats #feedmyphone #phoneeatsfirst
🎐Hope and fear cannot occupy the same space at the same time. Invite one to stay. - Maya Angelou🎐 . . 🏷During my trip to Japan, I came across many of these wishes called "Ema". People who visit shrines/temples are able to write something they wish or hope for and attach it to trees/poles that have hundreds of other wishes on them from other visitors. Taking my time to read them was a great reminder that there's so many of us who wish for similar things: peace, love and happiness. . . . #granniesgather #27072017 #japan #wish #tokyo #mayaangelou #ema
👅Pork Knuckle Bento ($7.25) 📍Running Pig [3636 Steeles Ave. E, Unit #150, Markham ON] ⭐️4/5 • This small Taiwanese restaurant is perfect if you're looking for a quick meal that's filling and cheap. The bento boxes consist of the same side dishes (bean sprout, egg, spicy tofu) and rice at the bottom, then you have your choice of the main part. I chose the pork knuckle, which was well-seasoned and large enough to make this bowl worthwile. I will definitely be back to try the other bentos! . . . #granniesgather #runningpig #21032018 #porkknuckle #taiwanese #rice #bento #markhamfood #food #blogto #tofoodies #tastetoronto #foodporn  #foodgasm #foodpics #markhameats #yyzeats #feedmyphone #phoneeatsfirst
👅HK Milk Tea Ice Cream ($3.75 single scoop) 📍Henry Browns [35 York Blvd, Hamilton ON] ⭐️5/5 • Located within the Farmers' Market in Hamilton, I stumbled upon Henry Brown's after trying the famous Pokeh - also located within the market. I was immediately drawn towards the HK Milk Tea flavour and after sampling it, I fell in love - it was creamy and tasted exactly like the drink. I wish this place was located closer to home to so I could try their other flavours and eat it all the time! . . . #granniesgather #henrybrowns #12082016 #icecream #hkmilktea #milktea #farmersmarket #torontofood #hamiltonfood #food #blogto #tofoodies #tastetoronto #foodporn  #foodgasm #foodpics #torontoeats #yyzeats #feedmyphone #phoneeatsfirst
👅Negitama Gyudon ($8.99) + Shigure Don ($6.49) + Niku Udon ($5.99) + Takoyaki ($5.10) 📍Manpuku Japanese Eatery [105 McCaul St, Toronto ON] ⭐️2/5 • Hidden in the food court of the building, Manpuku was disappointing for us. This place serves more homestyle food and though the prices are good, the portions are quite small and the food was bland. The Negitama Gyudon, Shigure Don and Niku Udon all had the same toppings - beef and onions with a special sauce. However, we found the sauce to be lacking in the two rice dishes, making them dry and flavourless. The Niku Udon was tastier as the soup broth gave it more flavour. The takoyaki were large but it did not have the crispy exterior and chewy interior we like, rather it was more soft and doughy. . . . #granniesgather #manpuku #07042018 #udon #beef #egg #takoyaki #japanese #torontofood #food #blogto #tofoodies #tastetoronto #foodporn  #foodgasm #foodpics #torontoeats #yyzeats #feedmyphone #phoneeatsfirst
🍟Exercise? I thought you said extra fries!🍟 . . 🏷️ Homemade fries topped with bulgogi beef, caramelized onions, chopped kimchi and finished with a sunny-side up fried egg. GRANNY TIP: To get your fries crispy on both sides, bake first, then broil to crisp the tops! . . . #granniesgather #20032018 #fries #potatoes #bulgogi #beef #kimchi #egg #yolkporn #feedfeed #homemade #huffposttaste #food #blogto #tofoodies #foodporn  #foodgasm #foodpics  #feedmyphone #phoneeatsfirst
👅Libretto Traditional ($19) + Margherita D.O.P ($15) + Fungi di Bosco ($19) + Arugula Salad ($11) 📍Pizzeria Libretto [155 University Avenue, Toronto, ON] ⭐️5/5 • Another successful trip to our favourite restaurant! This time, we ordered the daily special, the Libretto Traditional, which came with chorizo sausage, pepperoni, whipped ricotta, mozzarella, and basil leaves - all on top of their tasty marinara sauce. This pizza is a winner for those who love meat and enjoy a little bit of spice! It was our first time trying the Fungi di Bosco, a mushroom pizza topped with a white sauce rather than the marinara, which made it reminiscent of cream of mushroom soup. And as always, you can't go wrong with the classic magherita pizza! To balance out all the pizza, we also got the arugula salad - it was lightly dressed with a tangy vinaigrette that complemented the slightly bitter arugula and sweetness of the ripe pears perfectly. . . . #granniesgather #pizzerialibretto #21032018 #pizza #magherita #chorizo #pepperoni #mozzarella #mushrooms #cheese #magherita #arugula #salad #torontofood #food #blogto #tofoodies #tastetoronto #foodporn  #foodgasm #foodpics #torontoeats #yyzeats #feedmyphone #phoneeatsfirst
👅Roasted Oolong ($3.75) + Vietnamese Coffee ($3.75) 📍Kekou Gelato House [13 Baldwin St, Toronto, ON] ⭐️4.5/5 • This location of Kekou Gelato is definitely the smaller and quieter of the two, but the employees are just as friendly! We had an extremely hard tine choosing from their wide array of unique flavours, so we were so happy to see that they allow unlimited samples. Just make sure you make your purchase before you ask for a taste test! All of the flavours we tried were strong and tasted exactly as it was named. We finally settled for the Roasted Oolong and Vietnamese Coffee, which were both creamy, delicious and given in a good size portion. It's safe to say we'll definitely be back for more in the future! . . . #granniesgather #kekougelatohouse #07042018 #kekou #gelato #icecream #oolong #coffee #torontofood #food #blogto #tofoodies #tastetoronto #foodporn  #foodgasm #foodpics #torontoeats #yyzeats #feedmyphone #phoneeatsfirst
👅Salmon "sake" aburi oshi + Scallop "hotate" aburi oshi + Shrimp "ebi" aburi oshi + Tuna "toro" aburi oshi ($19) 📍Kiu [169 Enterprise Blvd., 2nd Floor, Markham ON] ⭐️4/5 • This platter of torched sushi was definitely one of the more expensive dishes I've had in my life. Coming in at $2 a piece, you can bet that you'll be getting the best and freshest fish on the market! According to their website, Kiu has fish flown in twice a week from Japan's Tsujuki Fish Market, so you know you're getting quality food. To my surprise, the Shrimp "ebi" aburi oshi was my favourite one. The wasabi-mayo sauce perfectly complemented the shrimp and did not overwhelm the torched flavour. What makes this sushi so unique, in my opinion, is how the chef chooses toppings/sauces that perfectly complement the seafood! . . . #granniesgather #kiu #03042018 #sushi #aburi #sashimi #salmon #scallop #shrimp #tuna #markhamfood #food #blogto #tofoodies #tastetoronto #foodporn  #foodgasm #foodpics #markhameats #yyzeats #feedmyphone #phoneeatsfirst #downtownmarkham
✨Thirty seconds of infinity✨ . . 🏷We went to visit the Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors exhibit at @agotoronto last week and had our breath taken away. If you haven't heard of this exhibit, it is simply six rooms using mirrors, lights and various textiles to showcase the possibility of infinity. This specific room is called 'The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away' and is meant for you to become a part of the room itself, as it gives you the illusion that you have vanished into infinite space. Have you guys been? We'd love to know which rooms were your favourite! . . . #granniesgather #07042018 #ago #infinitymirrors #yayoikusama #lights #artgalleryofontario #toronto #infinitekusama #blogto
👅Ahi Tuna Club ($18.75) 📍Joey Eaton Centre [1 Dundas St W, Toronto ON] ⭐️3.5/5 • My eyes were immediately drawn to this menu item when I saw that it came with onion rings. Thankfully, it did not disappoint! The onion rings added a nice savoury crunch to the buttery ahi tuna and soft chewy bun. The combination of flavours from the sweet pepper relish and salty bacon was also very delightful. . . . #granniesgather #joeyeatoncentre #13062015 #ahituna #onionrings #bacon #fries #torontofood #food #blogto #tofoodies #tastetoronto #foodporn  #foodgasm #foodpics #torontoeats #feedmyphone #phoneeatsfirst
👅Earl Grey ($8.95) + Rainbow ($8.95) + Matcha Green Tea ($8.95) 📍Millie Café [8321 Kennedy Road, Unit 1065, Markham ON] ⭐️3/5 • We'll admit, this photo is from a year ago because they don't actually serve the Rainbow flavour anymore, but c'mon, the aesthetic is too real. These crepe cakes sometimes have too much cream, but the intense flavours always make up for it. Earl Grey is currently my favourite flavour, not too sweet with the perfect hint of floral! . . . #granniesgather #milliecafe #14012017 #crepe #crepecake #earlgrey #matcha #greentea #dessert #markhamfood #food #blogto #tofoodies #tastetoronto #foodporn #foodgasm #foodpics #markhameats #feedmyphone
👅Pick 3: Taiwanese Crispy Chicken, Deep Fried Yam and Crispy Salt & Pepper Egg Tofu ($12.99) 📍Cha Me Cha [8333 Kennedy Road, Unit #1078, Markham ON] ⭐️3.5/5 • Craving Taiwanese fried foods, but can't decide on one? Head on over to Cha Me Cha for this amazing deal! I love their Taiwanese chicken as it's always fried just right with the right amount of seasoning. The yam was nothing special, merely giant yam fries, and a little undercooked. My favourite was the fried egg tofu because of the crispy exterior and super smooth and soft inside. . . . #granniesgather #chamecha #17032018 #taiwanesechicken #chicken #yam #eggtofu #tofu #taiwanesefood #markhamfood #food #blogto #tofoodies #tastetoronto #foodporn  #foodgasm #foodpics #markhameats #feedmyphone #phoneeatsfirst
🍓Berry sweet dreams are made of cheese... . . 🏷️ Classic cheesecake beaten by hand due to the lack of electric beaters in London. Topped with strawberries for the aesthetic. . . . #granniesgather #23042017 #strawberry #cheesecake #feedfeed #homemade #huffposttaste #food #blogto #tofoodies #foodporn  #foodgasm #foodpics  #feedmyphone #phoneeatsfirst
👅Italian Nachos ($9.95) + Roasted Squash Gnocchi ($20.95) 📍Jamie's Italian [3401 Dufferin Street, Toronto ON] ⭐️3/5 • Located at Yorkdale Shopping Centre, Jamie's Italian was the first of its kind in Canada. The pasta on their menu is superb, but be ready to stay hungry as the portions are usually too small to be a full meal by itself. The gnocchi was the perfect texture and the sauce had the perfect flavour. I would not get the Italian Nachos again, which are just deep fried ravioli, as they were nothing really special. All in all, an extremely pricey meal, but I would still say to give it a try as their pastas are honestly really fresh and delicious! . . . #granniesgather #jamiesitalian #13012018 #gnocchi #ravioli #italian #pasta #squash #torontofood #food #blogto #tofoodies #tastetoronto #foodporn  #foodgasm #foodpics #torontoeats #feedmyphone #phoneeatsfirst
👅I Am Chocolicious + Vanilla Ice Cream ($13) 📍Krepesz Cafe & Bar [253 Augusta Avenue, Toronto ON] ⭐️3.5/5 • This super cute cafe in Kensington Market has a small patio outside its store, perfect for those hot summer days. The crêpe had a nice texture to it, not too thick, and was filled with lots of fresh fruit that complemented the chocolate sauce. We highly recommend that you add the scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra dollar! . . . #granniesgather #krepesz #08072016 #crepes #icecream #dessert #kensingtonmarket #torontofood #food #blogto #tofoodies #tastetoronto #foodporn  #foodgasm #foodpics #torontoeats #feedmyphone #phoneeatsfirst
👅Pork Ramen w/ Miso & Age Gyoza Combo ($14.99) 📍Kinton Ramen [505 Highway 7 East, Unit #5458, Markham ON] ⭐️4/5 • For the times you're craving both ramen and an appetizer, this Kinton Ramen Combo is the perfect choice! I decided on the pork ramen with miso soup base and thick noodles, which is my usual go-to order. In my opinion, the miso is the least salty, yet still has a good amount of flavour. With a choice of pork or chicken, four soup base and options for noodle size, there are many other combinations available. As for the side dish, the age gyoza is the perfect addition to your meal. If you feel like having rice, there is also the option of Ton Ton Don (pork) or Chiki Chiki Don (chicken). Just make sure you head into Kinton before 5pm, as the combo is only available then! . . . #granniesgather #kintonramen #03022018 #ramen #gyoza #markhamfood #food #blogto #tastetoronto #foodporn #foodpics #markhameats #feedmyphone #phoneeatsfirst
